Forward Motion and Noise-To-Signal Ensemble are teaming up to play a show at the Indianapolis Artsgarden! This concert is free to attend and will feature new music for classical instruments. Stop by to hear Indy New Music!
The Noise-to-Signal Ensemble (N2SE) brings performances and education in contemporary art music to both musical and non-musical audiences. Featuring a unique lineup of composers and instrumentalists (clarinet, bass clarinet, saxophone, oboe, bassoon, and piano), N2SE exclusively performs works by living composers. The 2016-17 season includes world premieres by Daniel Harrison, Amy Dunker, Ashlin Hunter, and Dalen Wuest. Recently, the group announced the winners of its 2016-17 Call for Scores. Founded in 2015 in Bowling Green, Ohio, the group has performed across the United States, including recitals and presentations in Ohio, Illinois, Minnesota, and Iowa.
Forward Motion is an ensemble of emerging artists based in Indianapolis. Formed in September 2016, the group is rapidly gaining support from the Indy music community. As the only ensemble of its kind in Indianapolis, Forward Motion pioneers the city’s Indie-Classical culture by bringing innovative performances to audiences old and new.
The inaugural season of Forward Motion is partially funded by the Arts Council of Indianapolis. After the ensemble’s debut concert in November 2016, support from the community of Indianapolis poured in. The initial small-scale concert tour that was planned has since transformed into a season of busy activity consisting of performances in formal spaces, informal salon-style concerts, educational performances on music in the 21st century, and exciting collaborations with New Music advocates.
Collectively, the members of Forward Motion have commissioned and composed dozens of new works with individual projects. The ensemble is excited to begin creating new pieces for their group with a special Indianapolis Composers Series in the 2017-2018 season. This series will host several concerts that highlight the work of composers from Indy.
